Papua New Guinea 22nd Oct - 10th Nov 2009

14 Oct 2009 14:51 | Tim Beaumont

CDXC Members Derek G3KHZ, Gordon G3USR, David M0VTG and others will be active from three Papua New Guinea island groups successively from the middle of next week until Tuesday 10th November.

You can see full details on the DXpedition web site at http://www.425dxn.org/dxped/p29_2009/ which identifies full details including dates by island, callsigns and QSL routes.

P29 is around 105 in the world most wanted and is in the low 90s in CDXC's clublog. The IOTA islands are all less than 10% claimed and one of these groups, Woodlark has only been activated once before.

Activity will be balanced between CW and SSB with some RTTY also planned. Bands will be 160 to 15 metres with the possibility of 12 and 10 (these latter probably just on SSB) should conditions allow. We should have up to 4 concurrent stations.

Our objectives include giving P29 as a new one to as many stations as possible and the 3 IOTAs to those who need them. We will not knowingly be in the 'band slot' game.

We look forward to working as many CDXC members as possible. Hope to see you in the pile up.

73 and good DX Gordon, G3USR On behalf of the P29 team.
